Win A Big Buck Hunter Pro

June 1, 2007

I want to see more stuff like this, not only for the fact that this is a competition to win your very own arcade game, but also because this is more good publicity for arcades. If I’m not mistaken MTV is a fairly well know TV channel, so this is a great bit of marketing. So let’s see more competitions like this, I wouldn’t mind owning a DDR or a WCCF!

“Want to win your very own Big Buck Hunter Pro game or possibly a talking deer head? No matter how weird a talking deer head sounds-who cares as long as it’s free, right?  
 
I’ve been around one of those singing Billy Bass fish and it has entertained me plenty, I bet a talking deer head has to be at least 10 times as entertaining as a singing fish.  
 
All you have to do is sign up to register to compete in a video-taped tournament that will end up on the MTV Games website. Go to this MTV site for all of the details and rules.”

Controversy over "The King of Kong"

June 1, 2007

A few days back I posted about a new documentary called the King of Kong that documented one man’s quest to conquer the world record for Donkey Kong but it also featured several other players such as Billy Mitchell. As it turns out, a few people including Billy Mitchell and a number of people at the site Twin Galaxies weren’t too happy about it and as such MTV News has done a little investigating about the different points of view that this film brings to light. They cover both sides of the issue and it shows that things are a little more complex than they seemed at first. Either way I think the main point here is that neither player had it out for each other from the looks of things and the folks at Twin Galaxies aren’t too appreciative of the fact that they and Mitchell are made out to be ‘villians’ in the film. As always with any documentary, it’s good to look at both sides of what is portrayed in the film.
